Come Have Fun With Us at OSL!

If you are looking for some spiritually uplifting, family friendly activities this Summer, you have come to the right place. There is always something fun going on at Our Savior.

When you get involved in church activities, you open yourself up to opportunities for personal rebirth, renewal and regrowth, you create lasting memories with family and friends, help people in the surrounding neighborhood, and make a difference in this and your community.

Our Pastor, Executive Director and Board Members will be happy to tell you all about our on-going activities and our up-coming events and projects, as well as our plans for future programs.

FIT FOR LIFE IN CHRIST

"If we all use the same Bible, why are there so many different denominations? What makes the Lutheran Church different than my other Church? What about evolution? Isn't it a proven scientific fact? What can we know about the end of time? What about life issues: Infant Baptism, Divorce, Homosexuality, Abortion? Does God still speak to us today? Is His Word reliable? Is it relevant for the 21st century?"

If these are questions that you have asked, then mark your calendar for our next Fit For Life in Christ session.

Next class Start Date:

TBD - 2015

Fit For Life in Christ is a 10 to 12 week course that presents the Word of God in exciting and meaningful ways. It is a course for those who are interested in membership in our church, or for anyone who wants to know what it really means to have a relationship with Jesus Christ.

You owe it to yourself and your life with God to register and bring a friend to this enlightening, faith-building opportunity!

Call the church office to register or for more information.
